In 2017, Doxa has released several “anniversary” timekeepers that celebrate the brand’s first semicentennial in the business of making professional diving tools. While the blackfaced Sharkhunter and the silver-faced Searambler attracted their fair share of attention from collectors and, um, more normal enthusiasts alike, it was the Sub 300 “Black Lung” Limited-Edition automatic diver that broke the brand’s own sales record with the whole bunch being pre-ordered during the first 24 hours after registration officially commenced.
The heavy-duty Doxa SUB 4000T Professional line of diving watches has finally received a new rotating bezel that features a scratch-resistant sapphire insert. As the name implies, the watch is still rated for pretty much impressive 4000 feet of water resistance that can be roughly converted into 1220 meters of bone-crushing depth.
The new Doxa Splash Gent (ref. 700.10R.061.20) quartz diving (or, being more honest, diving-styled) wristwatch will not surprise you with a highly-complicated movement or an extreme water resistance rating. However, in these tough times, this new timekeeper may well become a nice choice for a person who simply wants to get a cool, masculine-looking timekeeper that increases one’s mojo by a magnitude of seven.
With its quartz Grafic Mistero (ref. 359.10S.101.20) chronograph, DOXA makes the first step into the uncharted territory of relatively inexpensive timepieces that come in a deliberately “un-Doxa” hi-tech exterior.
The Doxa has finally presented its limited-edition SUB 4000T Professional 10th Anniversary diving tool. Sporting a traditionally oversized, cushion-shaped stainless steel body, the 10th Anniversary edition offers you everything that a professional diver can expect from this kind of device: highly legible dial, an impressive water resistance rating and a highly dependable Swiss-made automatic movement that will last for years. All that comes at a pretty affordable price.
The new Doxa Chateau des Monts (ref. 620.10S.105.01) hand-wound wristwatch comes in a deliberately (perhaps, even in a slightly “calculated” way) exterior that is most commonly associated with vintage pocket watches that were produced in late-19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Although the collection officially celebrates the 120th anniversary of the brand, it is not exactly so. Here is why.
Right after presenting its limited-edition SUB 5000T Seaconqueror model, DOXA reveals its vintage-inspired 2008 SUB 600T-Graph collection. Looking mean and cool, the gadget boasts a water-resistance rating of 600 meters and is legible enough to give you all the necessary information at a single glance.
The recently unveiled SUB 5000T Seaconqueror has been officially promoted to the flagship status. Featuring all the usual design traits from DOXA, the device is offered in a deliberately aggressive-looking design with lots of protruding parts that may make you hurt somebody if not used with care.
